Scurvy Dog is a high-potency vitamin C serum, elevated with a blend of stabilizing antioxidants like vitamin E, ferulic acid, and unique caffeine crystals.
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) stands as the star of skincare antioxidants, known for its prowess in lightening dark spots, boosting collagen, and shielding skin from pollution and UV damage. Scurvy Dog also features glycyrrhetinic acid from licorice for an added anti-inflammatory and brightening effects. Ascorbic acid creates a potent antioxidant reserve with a half-life of 4 days once it gets into your dermis, combating free radicals from various environmental stressors. To maintain its effectiveness, regular application is key.
Scurvy Dog requires a bit of acclimation, with its pH under 3.5 to ensure vitamin C penetrates the dermis effectively. Initially, you might experience a tingling sensation when first applying.
Upon application, Scurvy Dog leaves the skin slightly tacky as it absorbs. Once your skin feels dry and smooth, the treatment has fully penetrated, readying you for the next skincare step. Be cautious not to advance too quickly, as doing so might raise your skin's pH above 3.5, hindering further vitamin C absorption.
